**The combined water and sewer rate has been increased >0.5% (5 cents per 100 cubic feet). The new combined water and sewer rate is $11.21 per 100 cubic feet.**

The increase covers the increase in the cost of water from the City of Chicago.

Every household must have a $45 deposit on file for water and sewer service. The deposit is billed on your first water bill. Water and sewer bills also contain the bi-monthly solid waste collection fee. (See Refuse & Recycling)
